A new report claims that the upcoming Watch Series 8 could have an all-new design with a flat screen, a much faster processing chip if some rumors are to be believed, and a slightly new case. Fans of the Cupertino-based tech giant will get to see the device on September 13, the same day they launch the all-new iPhone 14.
According to a renowned Apple leaker who uses the username ShrimpApplePro, the upcoming Apple Watch Series 8 would come with a flat glass front display and a slightly reworked overall design, although there’s no clear information on what the overall design would look like.
The company introduced 41mm and 45mm screen sizes last year with the launch of their previous generation of smartwatches, the Apple Watch Series 7. In addition, Apple has also reduced the size of the bezels around the screen in the Watch Series 7.
Another report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says 2022 could be an important year in Apple Watch history since the original model was unveiled to the world.
Apple planned to introduce features with the Apple Watch Series 7 that would measure users and help regulate body temperature. However, due to a number of algorithm optimization issues, this was not successful in time for the launch.
The tech giant is therefore expected to add the feature to their line of smartwatches starting with the Apple Watch Series 8. However, the Apple Watch Series 8 will only come with a body temperature sensor and only if it is capable of accurate readings and compliance. Apple’s strict requirements for mass production.
The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to have a more energy-efficient, much faster chip and better activity tracking features. This time, the sleep tracking feature should be able to detect advanced sleep patterns and even ailments like sleep apnea. In terms of design, the smartwatch may not see major design updates, even when it comes to size. Previous reports have also hinted that the Watch Series 8 will be getting a car accident detection feature.
